  • Scorpion Exhaust & DB Killer

    Hi guys.

    I just received a Scorpion Exhaust from States which was a Great Deal
    US$300.
    As you can imagine I was really excited and I put that on straight away.
    However, it turns out that the noise level was way above my limit and i am afraid of getting yellow stickers by our good friends(Cops....)
    after bit of research I noticed Scorpion makes DB killer (a baffle) and my question is, if you buy scorpion does it usually come with baffle or u gonna have to order separately? and if so how much did u pay for them?

    thanks heaps guys!

    I'm pretty sure the DB killer is only standard in EU markets to meet their laws. I got mine from the States without DB killers (the extra noise hasnt bothered me though), but they do have "Race use only" etched just below the outlets. I think you should be able to buy them from the UK though.

        On your bikes compliance plate it will have a db level for the stock exhaust. If your new exhaust is louder than that it is illegal.
        Feels good man.

          but that means most if not all aftermarket exhaust no? i know for the gixxer that even a top quality full system like yoshi will have higher dB count than stock even with a baffle on

              not everything......


              Yoshi have a couple of different types. Some are EPA approved and come with a sticker.

              I have tried to get a permit for a modified exhaust on a bike and i got a straight up " we don't do any permits for bikes" responce from the pits.

              The approved Yoshi ones are quiter and do not have FOR RACE USE ONLY stamped on them.

                Evo , whack it on and ride it. If you get pulled over , act apologetic , say you didn't realise because of your helmet, and that the shop said it was ok .Should hopefully see you through until you update to your new bike in a few years!!
                Sventek, being a predominantly lazy fuck can you please purchase some for me, bring me the stuff, create something I want after you think of it for me then clean my house, wash my car, dog, bike breathe for me.

                    yeah, for sure thats how i will b acting in case i get pulled over.
                    Just gone to work and back with this new exhaust on and realized the noise it makes is beyond my limit and without ear plug i get headache. I donno if anyone actually can stand that noise level.... its as loud as airplane but deeper tone.
